The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints will wrap up this weekend’s NFL action with a Sunday Night Football matchup. New Orleans won the first meeting between these two NFC South powerhouses but the public seems to think Tampa Bay can even up the season series. Let’s take a look at the betting splits on DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Buccaneers are 4-point favorites on their home turf after losing to the Saints by 11 in their season opener and are riding a three-game wining streak. Tampa Bay is 3-0 at home and has won by an average of 16.33 points. Bettors have placed 61 percent of the handle and 54 percent of the total bets on the home team. The Saints are hoping to get an offensive boost from the return of Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, but that might not be enough to get the job done against one of the hottest teams in football.

These two squads totaled 57 points in Week 1. The point total is installed at 50.5 in this matchup and there’s a good chance the over hits if both teams have all their weapons available. The public has placed 74 percent the handle and 84 percent of the total bets on the over.

Tampa Bay is favored at -200 while New Orleans is an underdog at +175 on the road. Bettors are split pretty evenly when it comes to moneyline wagers but the Buccaneers command 60 percent of the handle and 61 percent of the total bets. Home field advantage and the addition of Antonio Brown to an already dynamic receiving corps has the bettors leaning on the favorite.
